Oliv Violin Strings

Features

  • The sheep gut core of the Oliv strings is manufactured, wound and polished in the traditional way, by hand. 
  • Musicians such as Ilya Gringolts use Oliv strings as they offer the possibility "to explore the remotest corners of sound".
  • The sound is brilliant. Oliv strings offer the typical beautiful sound of gut strings. 
  • The tone is rich and complex.
  • Altering the gauge by 1/4 PM changes the tension by 3%.
  • The silver D-string is richer in overtones and has easier response than the gold-aluminum which is included in the set. 

Set

  • The medium set contains the following strings:
    E-goldsteel medium, A-aluminum 13 1/2,
    D-gold-aluminum 16 3/4,
    G-gold-silver 15 3/4.
  • For further information concerning E-strings please refer to: E-strings.

Variations
